    Summary

    The hallways to the history building are filled with stragglers as Ben heads toward the lecture hall. He’s not looking forward to the course; his interests lie in medieval studies, not World War II. Plus, his friend Dopheld heard that the visiting professor is a hardass—which is not something Ben needs in his senior year, and he’s already starting it off on the wrong foot.

    Ben skids through the auditorium doors just as they’re closing. His eyes scan the row of seats, and perhaps he’s not totally out of luck because there’s an empty one in the back. It’s close to the end, and he thinks he can slip into it without Professor Hux noticing. It’s when Ben’s just settled in, having placed his backpack on the ground, that his professor turns around, his eyes focused on his tablet.

    “Nice of you to join us, Mr. Solo,” Professor Hux begins, his brow furrowing as he stares at the attendance list.

    “Holy fuck,” Ben whispers, wishing he could disappear into his seat. Because while Professor Armitage Hux may now wear a suit jacket and a pair of wire-rimmed glasses, there’s no mistaking his soft brogue. Or that it was his sinful mouth going down on Ben in the bathroom at the loft.

    Summary

    Derek’s desperate to catch Stiles’ scent. He wonders if it will be dark and earthy, crackling with the fire of his spirit, or sweet with the promise of those honeyed eyes and lush mouth. He tells himself it is a normal curiosity that makes him seek the answer, and nothing else.

    Derek sniffs, his nostrils flaring as he tries to hold back his greedy gulps, then nearly recoils in shock. Because Stiles smells... well, unobtrusive. Abnormally so. Even betas have a unique scent, although one typically less distinct than those of alphas or omegas. It’s as if his scent has been erased, with only the ghost of its existence beneath his skin.

    A myriad of emotions flickers through Stiles' face.

    “Not a love match, then,” he croaks out. “Perhaps it would behoove you to remember, Your Royal Highness, that it is not only polite but appropriate to ask for permission before scenting someone. Unless you want to be mistaken for just another knot head.”

    “You are mistaken in thinking I care about your opinion,” Derek says coldly, brushing away the sting of Stiles’ words.

    Summary

    Mr. Daniels snorts. “Stiff upper lip, Armitage. Fall’s almost here. Then you’ll have the entire off-season to yourself before you’re forced to be civil again.”

    “Perhaps I won’t be here after this summer.” Hux scowls, pushing down on his pencil so hard the tip breaks.

    Shit. It’s definitely a sign. Hux needs to get out of Saltpoint Landing. Maybe right after the summer; he can put the General Store up for sale or even rent it out. He already feels the town’s pull, but in a bad way. Everyone who lives here never leaves, and to Hux that feels like a life sentence. It’s not the first time he’s had these thoughts, but it’s the first time he’s voiced them out loud.

    He refuses to become another statistic.

    Summary

    The prince knows it’s risky. He thinks about how he could manage without his wings; what his life would be like without flying or the ability to do spells. He thinks about his father and Scott, and all the others he’d leave behind if he fails. But then he thinks about the creature and the sadness in those green eyes, and how the image haunts his dreams.

    “I’ll do it,” he says as the Oak Witch’s grin grows wide.

    Summary

    Marriage to the shape-shifting Alpha King of Lunansholt wasn't on Stiles' bingo card, but his magic had other plans.

    [excerpt]:
    Stiles entered Derek’s chambers, slamming the door behind him. “What did you do with my things?”

    “These things?” Derek asked, waving his hand with an arched brow.

    Stiles gaped when he saw his books lined neatly on Derek’s shelves. His trunk was in the corner, many of his clothes were visible in the partly open wardrobe, and the cloak he’d brought from home hung neatly on a hook.

    “It would have been nice if you asked first.” A quick sweep around the room found only one bed. “Where am I supposed to sleep?” he asked, frowning.

    “We are married now, Stiles,” Derek said after a moment. “We sleep together.”

    Summary

    Stiles is the enfant terrible of modernist cooking. Derek is San Francisco’s celebrated chef of haute cuisine. It’s bad enough their restaurants are within spitting distance of one another, but when they’re asked to scout out the next location for the International Food and Wine Festival, the Queso flameado isn't the only thing going down in flames.

    [excerpt]:
    “I can answer perfectly well, and no, I’m Mieczysław,” Stiles says, taking a step forward. “Stiles is my nickname, and it’s not that I think I’m the hottest shit—although I’m pretty fucking exceptional at what I do—but for one, our industry’s pretty small, and two, not only do we work in the same city, our restaurants are literally blocks apart. But I guess you live in your little bubble, so whatever.” Stiles has this hurt and angry look on his face that makes Derek think this is hardly whatever. But before he can apologize, Stiles barrels on. “Anyway, I don’t need to rely on gimmicks or nepotism to make a name for myself, so you can stop that pretentious, entitled line of thinking right now.”

    “Oh, shit,” Jackson and Lydia say in the same breath.

    Derek couldn’t agree with them more.

    Summary

    The average human can walk twenty miles in a day. It's different, though, when you're in the wilderness and battling supernatural creatures at every turn.
    ~~~
    Stiles is hallucinating.

    He cracks open an eye. He's floating… no, not floating, because he's bouncing up and down, horizontal-like, the skyline above the trees growing closer, then more distant. There are hands holding him upright, cradling his upper back, his thighs. There's a face hovering above him, with a shock of black hair, and although Stiles is having problems focusing, the person looks good. Insanely, inhumanly good.

    Stiles never wanted to be the recipient of the basilisk's venom, but now that it's coursing through him, he admits it's some top quality shit. Absolutely fucking primo.

    "Wow." He breathes, trying to enjoy the moment.

    "Stiles?" The person holding him bends closer, their eyes flashing a bright blue.

    Stiles shakes his head. He knows those eyes, remembers their unnatural, electric color. "Dude?"

    The godlike specimen huffs. "It's Derek. And don't call me 'Dude'."

    Stiles is pretty sure his mouth is hanging open unattractively. "We really need to talk," he manages before finally passing out.

    Summary

    Writers hope to bring their characters to life, but Hux never imagined it could happen like this.

    [excerpt]:
    Hux shoots Phasma an icy glare. "I'm not on anything," he says, batting her away. "I went to see Dr. Sloane like you suggested. And she said that part of my problem is that I have intimacy issues—big shocker—which is why I'm having so much difficulty writing my story. Because I can't make an emotional connection with others." He pauses, waiting for a denial or affront on his behalf, which doesn't come. "Anyway, she asked me to create a character who could connect with Millie—"

    Phasma arches a brow. "Millie? Why Millie?"

    Hux feels the heat rise on his cheeks. "Because she's who I've had the longest, most meaningful relationship with? Anyway, Millie, by extension, means me. So I did what Sloane asked. I created someone named Ben Solo, AKA Kylo Ren. I spent over half the night dreaming up his backstory." He ignores the smirk on Phasma's face and continues. "And when I woke up, he was alive and naked and in my bed."

    Summary

    Hux never expected to find a jewel worthy of the Empire's crown in an Outer Rim desert wasteland.

    [Excerpt]:
    "I didn't get hurt." Ren's voice is muffled against the bedding, yet it's deep and powerful and strikes a thrilling note inside Hux's belly. "The T'doshok lasted less than ten minutes." He turns his head, his voice softening. "You worry too much, Poe."

    Poe shakes his head. "And you don't worry enough. You can't win over the people by just being the best. Loyalties are fickle; people detest a person who wins too easily just as much as they do a loser."

    "I'm a slave, not a God. Do you think anyone in those stands sees past this collar?"

    Hux leans against the side of the building and peers into the window. He catches a glimpse of the thick gold band around Ren's neck, the polished metal gleaming against tanned skin, and Hux is hit by the sudden, intense desire to see what it would feel like to control that much power in the palm of his hand.

    Summary

    Derek is a romantic. He dreams of finding his mate, of connecting with that special someone who will make his heart swoon.

    [Excerpt]:
    "Who says I need to be in a relationship to be happy?" Derek asks, his hackles rising. Besides, Boyd has it all wrong. Derek has Die Hard on his Christmas queue.

    Yippee ki yay.

    Boyd holds up both hands. "Not me. If you want to be a bachelor forever, I'm not one to judge."

    "But I am," Erica says. "You don't date anymore. Hell, when's the last time you even got laid? Which would also be fine, except it's not, because you're miserable and it's obvious that's not what you really want."

    Sometimes Derek has a hard time following Erica's logic. Unfortunately, this is not one of those moments. 

    "It doesn't matter," he says, digging the excess rice out from his wrap. "I'm better off alone."

    Summary

    Draco meets his fairy godmother and is granted three wishes. Unfortunately, they all keep coming back to the same thing.

    [excerpt]:
    Pop! 

    "Oh, wow," Vince says, and is that sarcasm Draco hears? "I never saw that coming."

    "What?" Draco opens his eyes. He's prepared for the theatrics of the puffs of smoke—Vince, despite the sudden career change, was never blessed with an overactive imagination—but what he was not prepared for was the sight of Harry Potter, bare-chested and dressed in arseless chaps, his hands bound and mouth wrapped around a ball gag while lying face down on Draco's sofa.

    Summary

    Draco picks at the hem of his robe. "I had a plan. I was going to woo Harry with my dashing charm and some earth-shattering sex. We’d fall madly in love, spend a year or two being sickeningly domestic, then get married and start a family."

    Pansy hides a smile. “One out of five’s not bad.”
     
    Or the one where a magical isle, a secret wish, and Harry bloody Potter take Draco’s plan and upends it on its head.

    Summary

    Two years after last seeing Hux on the Star Destroyer Steadfast, Ben learns that certain things are too powerful to escape their orbits.

    [excerpt]:
    The woman cackles. "No take backs."

    Ben stops short. "Why? What's wrong with him?"

    The trader circles the air around her ear. "He's a loner. No friends, not that anyone wants to spend time in his company. Only leaves his hut at night if he's required to or to stare at the sky. The others call him Stargazer," she adds, her derision unmistakable.

    "What's his given name?" Ben asks softly.

    The crone shrugs. "Before he was AH3519? Does it really matter?"

    Summary

    Hux can't reconcile the fact that the annoying brat who used to visit the Skywalkers next door is now the hottest guy he's ever met.

    [excerpt]:
    "I have plans with Phasma," Hux says in a last-ditch effort.

    "I thought you said Phasma wasn't your girlfriend?" For the first time, Brendol seems interested. "The two of you spend an awful lot of time together."

    Jesus fucking Christ. Hux doesn't waste his breath trying to explain to his dad that boys and girls can just be friends, and he's certainly not stupid enough to mention that his jerk-off material involves more dick than tits.

    “She’s just someone I know from camp.”

    "Well, I'm sure she'll understand, then," Brendol says as Hux lets out a long groan. He can't believe he's spending his Saturday watching over some pissbaby because his dad has a boner for climbing up the social ladder.

    Summary

    The black speck wavers in the nearly ninety-degree heat, out of place among the cornfields.

    Hux rubs the heels of his palms against his eyes. Maybe he’s more tired than he thought. Or hungry. Possibly both. But when his eyes refocus the speck is still there, growing larger, a tall, dark blade in a sea of yellow and green, sprouting up from the asphalt.

    “Holy shit.” Hux mutters under his breath as he makes out the outline of Kylo’s form. Kylo's right arm is outstretched, his thumb up. He’s walking backwards as if he doesn’t care one bit where he’s headed.

    Hux rolls his eyes as he leans over to the passenger side and lowers the window.

    “Hey, bean,” Kylo says, wearing a huge grin. “Long time, no see.”

    Hux gives him a flat look. “You’re like a bad penny.”

    OR: The 1950's Road Trip AU where Kylo falls into Hux's life several times and brings him more than a spot of good luck.

    Summary

    Draco can't believe that fate and circumstance have made him a stowaway on the Master of Death's ship. He doesn't know what's worse: the dread pirate's legendary vendetta against the aristocracy, or the fact that his captor is the most infuriating yet irrefutably fascinating man Draco has ever met.
